This past weekend a group of state legislators took questions about bills that are currently under debate at the Indiana Statehouse. The event was sponsored by the local League of Women Voters and held at Bloomington City Hall. Many of the questions from the public centered on a bill that would affect solar power. That bill was sponsored by Eric Koch (cook), a Republican state representative from Bedford. Koch was at the forum and responded to questions. We bring you a portion of that discussion now for today’s WFHB community report.

The League of Women Voters will sponsor a free, public legislative update this Saturday in Bloomington.
“What we do is invite legislators to come and introduce what’s happening in state legislature right now,” President of the League, Doris Wittenberg, says, “They talk about the bills being brought forth and the interest of those particular legislators. They tell us what they think about what they’re sponsoring or what they think about what’s going on in state legislature. There will also be a question and answer session”
Wittenberg said that there is no topic, but that this event is an update on what’s been going on tin the legislature this month.
“It’s an opportunity for people to hear what the legislators have to say and what they’ve been working on,” Wittenberg says, “It gives the community an opportunity to ask questions about whatever issues the legislators should be addressing.”
The Legislative Update will take place Saturday, Feb. 1, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Bloomington City Council Chambers Showers Building. The next update is scheduled to take place on March 1.
